News You Can Use From TiVo, Volume 60

The TiVo newsletter.

height=”1″/> Letter from the Editor

So yes, what I’m going to suggest here is maaaaaybe
on the sly side, but all is fair when it comes to love and obsessive lust
after a TiVo
logo-engraved iPod
, right? Plus, everyone wins here, I promise.

Turns out, you see, that giving the gift of TiVo® this year also means
rewarding yourself. Buy a TiVo box as a gift and not only will you improve
the life of the lucky recipient, but as a TiVo
member, YOU could also easily earn 5,000 TiVo Points. Just
ask your friend to enter your e-mail address when he/she activates service.

Along those same “reward yourself” lines, if you decide that
you’ve been very, very good and want to get your fine self a second TiVo®
box, remember that you’ll save on monthly fees with our Multi-Service
, paying just $6.95 a month for each additional box in the
home. You’ll be in good company: After hearing my pal Pete succumbed to
the new DVD
recorder with TiVo®
(only $399.99*, after mail-in rebate), I broke
down and got one, too. And yep, it rules.

Mistletoe & Menorah,

P.S. Give a 40-hour
box with 3-months service
for less than $140*! Order by December 18th,
we’ll ship it for FREE in time to hit your tree by Dec. 24th.

Seems TiVo truly is the box everyone wants to open
this year. In one way, shape or form, TiVo has made the “Nice”
list of nearly every major gift guide south of Canada, including The New
York Times, Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Cleveland Plain Dealer, Fortune,
GQ, Out Magazine, Out Traveler, Sync Magazine, Video Age International,
Consumer Digest (Jan.), FHM (Jan.), Men’s Fitness (Jan.), and Stuff (Feb.).
We’ve also heard rumors of guest appearances on Ellen
, Dr.
Phil (12/16)
and Good Morning America Weekend (12/18),
so schedule a recording

And if that wasn’t enough seasonal joy for one little box, then there
was this: “Your cable company may offer a free digital video recorder
(DVR) with a subscription, but chances are it’s a poor cousin to TiVo,
the industry leader in features and ease of use.”
